Founded in 1983 The Sportsman's Charity has a reputation for running first-class events and distributing funds to a wide range of primarily Scottish charities working in the fields of sport, children and young people, disability and the disadvantaged.
Each year, the Charity identifies two partner organisations which will receive a significant proportion of the funds raised at The Sportsman's Dinner.
In recent years the charities have included Combat Stress, Hearts and Balls, Beyond Boundaries, My Name's Doddie Foundation, Edinburgh School Uniform Bank, Teenage Cancer Trust and Edinburgh Community Food.
In 2020, the two partner charities were The Eve Appeal and the Tom Smith Testimonial Fund.
As well as supporting some of the larger established charities, The Sportsman's Charity takes a special interest in smaller organisations for which a modest donation can make all the difference.
